It’s illegal for an immigrant to live in this country without a visa, which means, they are not legally allowed to work in our country. They don’t have a Social Security number or a way to pay taxes.

So why, exactly, did the California Supreme Court grant an illegal immigrant the right to practice law?

Forget the fact that lawyers are sworn to uphold the law…

Yes, he was brought here underage by a parent. And, yes, he attended our schools and has graduated without getting into any trouble.

He even applied for citizenship… 20 YEARS AGO!!! Supposedly, that’s still pending.

There are so many things wrong with this scenario it’s hard to know where to start.

Why would it take our immigration department more than 20 years to process someone’s paperwork? Did he try hard to followup? Was the slowdown because he was here illegally and they were busy processing people attempting to immigrate legally?

And then there’s our court system… WHAT were they thinking??

And now, this illegal alien is going to hang his shingle and open his own business, in our country, where he has no legal right to live… but he’s been granted the right to practice law (WORK) here by the state legal system, even though the Federal government says he can’t work here (NO VISA). Anyone else confused?

Can’t wait to see how this legal precedence plays out… what a mess!

Weather Warfare!

Is the US causing problems with the world’s weather patterns? Is someone modifying weather patterns? Dane Wigington in to discuss.


Speaking of getting your “fair share,” 4 leaders of Pennsylvania Local 13 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) union got a little more than their fair share. They each received a salary INCREASE greater than $100,000 in 2012! Not a bonus. Not a one-time payment. A salary increase! That means, they’ll be getting at least this amount every year going forward. Each are now making in excess of $200,000 per year.

Three of the 4 are either a senior level manager or director. The fourth is an ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT working for the Executive Director who is only making $184,825. Hmmmm???

Gotta love those union perks! Glad to see those union dues are going to a good cause.

Who’s Really Living on the Minimum Wage?

Phil Kerpen says that just 1.9% of all wage and salary earners make the minimum wage or less. Just 1.5% make less than $10.10, the level Dems want to hike it to. So what does a minimum wage increase really do… increase YOUTH unemployment! TUNE IN!


Rolling Stones writer, Jesse A. Myerson, says millennials should be fighting for 5 basic things (economic reforms). Here are just a few short excerpts.

He wants “Universal basic income, in which the government would just add a sum sufficient for subsistence to everyone’s bank account every month”

Where does he think the money comes from?

Landlords are bad? Yes. “They just claim ownership of buildings and charge people who actually work for a living.”

Hmmmm… they “just claim ownership” of property? Last I checked, you had to actually PAY for property. Where does he think they got the money to “claim ownership” of the property? Hellloooo… they WORKED for it! Go ahead and TRY to claim ownership of property you didn’t pay for. See what happens.

“A universal basic income, combined with a job guarantee and other social programs, could make participation in the labor force truly voluntary, thereby enabling people to get a life.”

Do you really want the government guaranteeing jobs for anyone? You won’t have to go to school for specialized training anymore. And you won’t have to worry about anyone attempting to excel at anything anymore. But wait, not everyone WANTS to work.

Ok, now we get down to it. No one should HAVE to work for anything. The government should own everything and distribute it evenly, and money should just be provided so that you can just have fun in life. Sounds like a plan… but it’s not reality.

If this guy is typical of our up-and-coming generation, we’re in big trouble! You can kiss that personal responsibility and liberty goodbye!

Walmart… you know, that nasty company who treats their employees so badly because they aren’t unionize? Their health insurance plans are better than Obamacare.

There’s no discrimination about who gets what coverage. In fact, the door greeter is offered the same plan as the CEO.

Oh… and it’s cheaper for the employees.

Evil capitalists!

Can your kids speak Finance?

What do your kids know about basic finances? What did you teach them? The pros and cons of debit cards cards. The cost of not paying off your credit card in full. Author Patti Handy is on a mission to help our children avoid debt.


Take a look at what the European Union is trying to standardize for education curriculum on sex and reproductive health:

Age 0-4 years
“Give information about enjoyment and pleasure when touching one’s body, early childhood masturbation

Age 4-6 years
“Give information about early childhood masturbation

Don’t think it doesn’t impact us here. It does. It may not be right away, but it will impact us eventually if they implement this.

Teachers, are you ready to tackle these subjects?

Parents, are you ready to homeschool? I know I am!

Gun, Citizen, Flag
Gun, Citizen, Flag

I had to read it twice… but it actually says the Detroit Police Chief James Craig believes that arming law-abiding citizens is a good idea!

Whodda thunk it? A Police Chief who still supports the 2ndAmendment, and even more surprising, concealed weapons permits!

This coming from the guy who is tasked with keeping the law in one of the most problematic cities in the U.S.

“According to a March 2013 anonymous poll of 15,000 officers by the law enforcement website, almost 90 percent of the respondents believed casualties would be decreased if armed citizens were present during shooting incidents.”

Chief Craig was quoted: “Coming from California (Craig was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years), where it takes an act of Congress to get a concealed weapon permit, I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation. I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

Weekend Wrap up and Pop Culture Crazy stuff!

Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won’t hear anywhere else. Tune in, you’ll be surprised.


Hawaii’s Department of Education spent nearly $1 million to implement a PILOT sex education program which is now on hold and under review after parents complained.

“Hawaii News Now reports parents were concerned their children in sixth, seventh and eighth grade, were learning to put condoms on dildos and about performing oral sex, vaginal sex, and anal sex.”

So… what should be covered in sex education? Is Pono Choices covering too much? Too early? Or are some things better left to the parents? Do you think there’s actually any discussion about merits of waiting until marriage?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one…

Let me see if I got this straight…

President Obama takes a “real and rare vacation in Hawaii” for 14 days.

Then he blasts Republicans during his Weekly Address for going “home for the holidays” and leaving constituents hanging.

Hypocrite much?

Last I checked, President Obama was the leader of our national government. It’s his job to pull Congress together to get jobs done when they aren’t working together. Maybe someone needs to remind him.

He went on in the Weekly Address to say: “We don’t abandon our fellow Americans when times get tough”… no, apparently, you just go on a 2-week vacation. Rough life…

Many of you know that I grew up in Boston. No, not outside of Boston. Not North of Boston. Not 2 hours from Boston. But in Boston proper. I grew up in the days when the Mafia acted in plain view. They were powerful and didn’t care who saw what. They were above the law and knew it. They owned the law and the people were afraid, some in fear of their lives, some in fear of their welfare.

I’ve been told the Chicago Mafia is much more ruthless and powerful. I can’t imagine. What I grew up with was pretty bad.

You see, they could walk up to a busy intersection, shoot someone in the head, watch him fall to the ground, pop him a few more times for good measure, and through all this, no one would “see anything.” When the police arrived, eventually, and all the local proprietors were questioned, no one ever saw anything, ever! They knew something unspeakable would happen to them and no one could help them.

This is how the American people are feeling about the Obama administration. This “Gang” never stops. This Gang is above the law, with President Obama acting as “Don” or leader and Attorney General Eric Holder as his “Capo” or captain. This Gang has so crippled the people of this country that we have gone from a nation to fear and respect to a nation to be ridiculed and laughed at.

The Gang has ruined our relationships oversees. Nobel peace prize winner and freedom fighter Lech Wałęsa recently said that Mr. Obama has ruined the credibility of America.

Americans should have seen this coming as far back as the 2009 elections. The New Black Panther group intimidates white voters ON VIDEO. Don Obama’s ultimate law officer, Capo Holder, does NOTHING! DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams quit his job because he was basically told to back off. When he wouldn’t let it go, the Gang made it very uncomfortable for him.

Election fraud is not investigated. Tens of thousands of dead and illegals voted in the last presidential election and Capo Holder did NOTHING!

Many states have legalized marijuana, however, it is still against federal law and Capo Holder does NOTHING! The chief law enforcement officer of the United States, Capo Holder, won’t bother the states as long as they adhere to a few guidelines, one being it can’t be sold to minors. Because that law works so well on cigarettes and booze. No minors ever get those. (Yes, that’s sarcasm!)

The Gang won’t enforce a law banning same sex couples from receiving veterans benefits. Capo Holder said that even though it’s the law “Decisions by the Executive branch not to enforce federal laws are appropriately rare,” (though not with this Gang), this one makes sense because the law will eventually change. (Is that how our legal system works now?)

The Gang won’t prosecute Goldman Sachs or its employees for financial fraud. Capo Holder said, “We conducted an exhaustive investigation of allegations brought to light by a Senate panel investigating the financial crisis. And feel there is not enough to prosecute.” Huh? Every other agency but the Gang has found evidence of fraud.

Family members of Don Obama have somehow eluded immigration laws and the DOJ because the Gang has protected them. His uncle in Boston has owned a liquor store, been “technically” deported several times, failed to show up for deportation hearings several times, and been arrested for drunk driving. Even after all that, he is still running around free in this country! His aunt is fleecing welfare and wants more AND she is not even an American citizen.

Fast and furious caused the death of a Border Patrol Officer (at least one officer that we know of, and countless other people) and the Gang refuses to allow the DOJ to investigate.

Meanwhile, the Gang is actively pursuing at least one law-abiding German immigrant family to deport them back to their country of origin. Why? Their visa expired and their reason for seeking political asylum isn’t good enough for the Gang. A judge granted their asylum petition, but Capo Holder’s DOJ takes time out of their busy schedule to overturn the ruling and is deporting them anyway.

Yet the Gang refuses to pursue more pressing issues of national security, immigration, and voting laws and simply enforce the other laws on the books? What does this family have that the others don’t have? It’s actually what they don’t have… a connection to the Gang.

I could write so much more on this. Don Obama issues laws AKA Executive Orders. For someone who was supposed to be a constitutional professor he has no clue as to how a “bill becomes a law” and the checks and balances called out in the Constitution.

He obviously doesn’t understand that the presidency and a dictatorship are NOT one in the same.

People, PAY ATTENTION, the REAL MOB is working the White House. You have to play by their rules. Laws are only for you to follow and them to change on a whim. And should you happen to get in the way… there’s always the IRS.

Wake up America… or you’re going to lose it!

Are Women really equal to Men?

Camille Paglia: A Feminist says NO! there are many differences and they need to stay that way. Female Marines don’t have to adhere to the same standards as male marines and that’s fair how???

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.

But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!

It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!


Reverend Al Sharpton
Reverend Al Sharpton

Well now, this didn’t turn out exactly as planned…

Rev. Al Sharpton went to Chicago to stir up the grassroots groups. He stirred them up all right, but they probably weren’t spouting the talking points he’d expected or hoped for.

Gun violence wasn’t the topic at hand in a full room.

“The manner in which we have been voting needs to change”

“If they have not voted in a manner that is beneficial to you, yours, and your community, then you need to start voting them out.

“Blame the right people, not just white people”

“Name-brand-blue-ribbon-negro-organizations are poverty pimps, and are part of the problem and not the solution.” (referring to NAACP and Urban League).

YIKES! I’m sure that’s not what Rev. Al was expecting. Glad to see the folks living in those communities are speaking up about the destruction left by a corrupt Democrat government. We should all take a cue from them before it’s too late.

Weekend Wrap up and Pop Culture Crazy stuff!

Andrea Nelson, from the Clover Agency, joins Joe to discuss recent news events that you probably won’t hear anywhere else. Tune in, you’ll be surprised.


Not like you care, but you might find some similarities between what you’re thinking and what I’m doing…

The top five resolutions are 1. Lose weight, 2. Get organized, 3. Spend less, save more, 4. Enjoy life to the fullest, and 5. Stay fit and healthy. Even more interesting is the percentages of accomplishment. Only 45% of Americans actually make resolutions and only 8% of those succeed… EIGHT PERCENT! (Pause here a moment and let that sink in!)

So, what makes me think I can keep mine? Do I think I’m better than those people? No. More stubborn? Yes! Willing to go to the wall? Yes!

There are many successful people in this world who simply never gave up. They pushed through and no matter how bad it got they never got disheartened. So, I’ll take a few of the major resolutions:

1. Lose weight. I pledge to lose weight, the weight of all those naysayers who claim conservatives can’t win, can’t stand strong, and can’t come together to ensure a win. I resolve to dump the weight of those people who send me emails telling me how this country is lost and we will never come back. I will do it by doing what I do best, consistently focusing on the mark, pushing towards it and asking God (yes I said God) for His guidance for success and how to get God and country to the place of honor it deserves.

2. Get organized. That’s so important! I’m not talking about lining up my suits in the closet or my underwear in the drawer, but getting my priorities straight. Organize my friends and acquaintances in such a way that I know who cares about what issues and have them help me strengthen this country again to make it, once again, the greatest country on the face of the planet. No one with “political correctness” need apply.

3. Spend less, save more. Agreed! Spend less energy fighting unwinnable fights and save more energy to be used on battles we can win. People in my line of work spend energy fighting on many fronts about many issues. If you don’t focus, you can’t win. Pick one or two, you know your bandwidth, use the saved up energy and resources fighting and organizing (see item 2 above) to support those issues close to your heart.

4. Enjoy life to the fullest. You have to have the “liberty” to “pursue happiness” and enjoy life to its fullest. Most people enjoy life when they are pursuing their dreams and working hard for their money to be able to save or invest as they see fit to better their lives. In order for me to be able to enjoy my life, I have to have control over it. What kind of healthcare I want or don’t want. Whether I want to join a union or not. How much debt I want to strap my children and grandchildren with.

5. Stay fit and healthy. OK, I can only spin this one so much. Yes, we need to take care of ourselves so that we have energy for the fight, because people, believe me, it will be a fight. Those of you who are left-leaning see what’s happened over the last almost 5 years as a positive. In your mind, America is finally taking care of all its people. Healthcare for all, mortgage reductions for all, overreaching regulations in banking, the EPA, FCC, and labor board (to name a few). A decimation of our military not seen since the days of Mr. Clinton. None of that has been healthy… NONE OF IT! The economy is being propped up on government money steroids, and is so fragile that when a hint is uttered that the government may pull back just a little, the market tanks! None of these things are healthy not a one.

I resolve to hold my feet to the fire to push, poke, and prod myself and others around me to get this country back to “Liberty and Justice for All.” All people, any color, any size and ethnicity should be able to pursue their dreams.

I resolve to hold my elected officials feet to the fire to do what they said they were going to do when they ran for election.

I resolve to make sure every legal vote counts by shining a light on those who think that any person on American soil with a heartbeat has the right to vote. They don’t! Our founding fathers didn’t give up their property, family, and lives for us to spit on the Constitution.

I resolve not to back down from my American pride, my Christianity, my “MALEness”, or my love for God and country.

Join me in a New Year’s Resolution to ensure that:

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.

God Bless and Happy New Year!

“Duck Dynasty” Dumping Derided by Project 21

“Duck Dynasty” is A&E’s highest-rated show. People are getting tired of the PC garbage. Mark my words. Fans of the show are going to raise holy hell, and Phil will be back on the show in no time. Coby Dillard in to discuss.

Project 21 member Coby Dillard said:

“That’s ALL Phil Robertson said? A&E is gonna regret their little tantrum long before it hurts him. They should’ve just said the standard “his views ain’t ours, enjoy the show,” meant it and kept it moving.”
